LIPA Re-enact The Beatles Apple HQ Performance

By Sarah Almond

LIPA students have celebrated the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ last ever-public performance.

The group paid homage to the band’s famous Apple HQ rooftop performance in 1969, by playing their own renditions of classic Beatles’ songs on the Starbucks rooftop in Liverpool One.

The set list included songs such as ‘Yesterday’, ‘Penny Lane’, and ‘Let It Be’.

Shoppers stopped in their tracks to watch the spectacular performance.

The re-enactment comes after Oscar winning director, Peter Jackson announced he will be directing a new film centred around the making of the Let It Be album.

The Lord of the Rings director is basing the film on 55 hours’ worth of never-before-seen footage, shot half a century ago, of the Fab Four’s creative process and their time in the studio.

The film has yet to be named, nor a release date set.
